We spent days 2, 3 and 4 of our 8 day journey here at KOA Charlottesville. Small but very nice campground. About 70 sites, 50 of which will accommodate an RV. They have all the amenities, the staff is very friendly and I haven't tried the fishing pond yet. About the only negatives I can think of is that Verizon and at&t cell service is 1 bar or less and that there are no major attractions close by. You have to drive to everything.
We did the Monticello/Mitchie Tavern thing yesterday. Had a great time. We tried to find some wineries but a number of them were either closed on Mondays or open by appointment only. We plan on doing the downtown Charlottesville thing today and try the wineries again. Not sure where we'll be tomorrow but it looks like 340 North Campground north of Waynesboro. I went to a great seafood restaurant there years ago. I think it was called Captain Sam's Landing. So I want to try it again and 340 North is the closest campground to it. I'll post that review in a day or two.

This was the first night of an 8 night RV road trip that will culminate with the VA Campers Rally in Luray, VA on 4/24-26/2015. The first night we stayed at Small Country Campground in Louisa, VA. They honored Passport America on a weekend for a $26.50 rate. At least 200 sites, they have all of the amenities. The owner is a Mr. Small and he was very active in overseeing the camp store and later the recently completed mini golf course. We enjoyed it even though Julie always beats me at mini golf. Good wi-fi and cell signal. They have a small lake that, though I didn't catch anything, was very picturesque. Overall I had a nice time here. The only thing that didn't make it a perfect day was that I had toad issues at the beginning with my recent vehicle that I purchased. I had everything from no hot power plugs when the vehicle was in the ACC mode (which rendered my brake assist unit unusable) to the toad turn signals not working to one headlight being burned out. So Julie has had to drive the Captiva all over VA for this trip.

The wife and I are leaving today for a 2 day season shakedown of equipment at Bear Creek Lake state park. Went there a lot in younger days. Have been since but the sites are fairly tight but being only 22 ft shouldn't be a problem. Re-coated roof over the winter and have a new toad with associated equipment. Don't want to be messing with a lot of stuff later. Will review park when we return as it was last reviewed in 2009 I think. Also I have retired from the grind so won't have to always make weekends. See you in Luray if everything works. Breadbox.

My rear tire cover had been looking very grungy lately. I cleaned it with everything under the sun and it still looked terrible. So I was in an Army surplus store in Fredericksburg with my son about a month ago. I saw some camo wheel covers that normally go on the back of military vehicles. I told my son that I thought it looked cool. But I didn't buy it. So I went to see him this past weekend and he said that he had something for me. So here it is. What do you think...
